Yoga&Windsurf Clinics with Philippe Bru and Jane Bakx
You are invited to enjoy the combination of the dynamics of yoga with the joy of windsurfing in two upcoming clinics!
About the Clinic
Do not expect just a windsurf & yoga clinic. This is more and we want to offer you an experience.
Besides having the opportunity to windsurf with the legendary Philippe Bru and practice yoga on the most beautiful spots on Bonaire with Jane Bakx, both Philippe and Jane will make sure you experience Bonaire in a special way. Of course you will also have plenty of time for yourself to relax and do what you want and need.
Come and play with us!
The Benefits of the Combination of Yoga and Windsurfing
With yoga you can literally rebalance your body, mind and soul.
Feeling more energy and recharged, improving your body’s flexibility, strength and balance, reducing or relieving aches and pains in the body, and much more.
These benefits work hand in hand with improving your windsurfing. A great way to achieve great results without straining your body!
We will have 6 persons maximum per clinic, meaning you will get a lot of personal attention.
About Philippe Bru
“To be member of the same tribe in which we understand each other, sharing strong values of self-surpassing, respect for others, performance and humility.”
Windsurfing since he was 13, the Frenchman is a legend in the international windsurfing communities. Professional windsurfer and foiler, Philippe learnt how to windsurf in Africa, where he basically grew up on water pushed by constant winds…
Philippe’s background is in event management which he used to inspire passion for sports for more 25 years. His most notable event is Defi Wind, which has been the biggest yearly international windsurf event with more than 1000 participants.
During his clinics Philippe invites all windsurfing enthusiasts with some experience or advanced windsurfers to enjoy five days of celebrating love for windsurfing and Bonaire.
You will experience 2 windsurf sessions minimum daily. You will be taken along to ‘Play‘, not ‘Train’ – to enjoy your time and improve your skills in your preferred areas!
And if some times the wind is not there, no worries, let yourself be guided by Philippe’s powerful vibes!
About Jane Bakx
“Yoga is all about making the connection with yourself, with your body, mind and soul. Respecting your body’s boundaries, keeping your body healthy and getting more flexible and strong along the way.”
Practicing yoga for over 15 years Jane has a big passion for teaching yoga. After living in Amsterdam most of her life and working in advertising for 20 years Jane decided to turn her life around. She followed her heart and started teaching yoga around the world. After teaching in Asia and Europe she ended up on beautiful Bonaire.
Besides teaching yoga she also organizes retreats.
The yoga sessions with Jane will help you keep your body healthy during the clinic.
In the mornings Jane offers a dynamic stretch & strengthening yoga session (45 – 60 min). These sessions start with a short meditation to make you connect to your body and quiet your mind, making you more focused. We move with the breath, strengthening and stretching shoulders, hips and legs and working on your core and balance. This physical practice and the connection to your body is a great tool to improve your windsurfing.
At the end of the day Jane offers an after windsurf stretching and relaxing yoga session (45 – 60 min). This is a more passive practice, aiming to stretch the deeper laying connective tissues of the body and find full relaxation. Also stretching the muscles you have been using the whole day while surfing. This practice will prepare your body and mind for your next day on the water.
